Dear Maserati, please hurry up with the all-new Gran Turismo

We need it sooner rather than later

Maserati has been lying dormant for too long. Under FCA (2014-2020), the Italian brand has unveiled a grand total of... one new model, the MC20, because the Gran Turismo/Gran Cabrio, the Ghibli and the Quattroporte were unveiled between 2007 and 2013, before the Fiat-Chrysler merger. That's not enough and they know it.

The Gran Turismo is a fabulous-looking thing and it has one of the best-sounding V8s in modern history but it's outdated and it has been for quite some time. The Italian manufacturer (now part of Stellantis) is reportedly working on an all-new model, which will be loosely inspired by the MC20 in terms of styling even though it's still going to retain its front-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout.

Speaking of engines, Maserati specifically developed the twin-turbo V6 'Nettuno' engine for the MC20 and they're adamant they're not going to use it for any other car (mh), which means they're either going to use an all-new powertrain, in which case we're almost certainly looking at a hybrid or an electric unit, or a different engine sourced from one of many brands under the giant Stellantis wing.

  • I feel like they're going to use a peugeot inline 4 and use the platform from a peugeot as well seeing how they've treated their other brands they acquired

  • All I know is they need to hurry up with this so that the price will drop significantly on the last model and become more affordable because I want one. Lol
